I started out so inspired by the 15 Minute concept. Then was thwarted by gift deadlines, a grumpy sewing machine, and the need to organise my stash before I could acutally find what I wanted within an hour, let alone those precious 15 minutes!
With our men-folk loudly killing deamons in the next room, us girls found ourselves confined to the living room. So I sat back on the sofa, grabbed some scraps, and made mini 1/2 inch hexagons, for no reason at all. Well, they are cute, and they used up some impossibly small scraps. I'm currently working on a 1" hexagon quilt, so these serve no pre-defined purpose. Perhaps I had more fun knowing I had no goal - the colours didn't matter, and the blurgh-ness of some of the fabrics was irrelevant. All I had to do was enjoy the process. And I did.
If anyone has any ideas for a small but growing pile of 1/2" hexies, I'd love to hear them!
(Oh, and inspired by a friend's pin cushion, I grabbed my felt stash and made my own, in less than 15 minutes!)
